There has been some email on the classpath tools project
on modifying/extending gnu.bytecode (a self-contained part of Kawa)
to create a readable assembly output - and perhaps an assembler.
The default gnu.bytecode.dump output format is (or at least was)
identical to jcf-dump's (since I wrote both - having the same format
made testing easier).

I have some jcf-dump patch (ready to go as soon we we branch)
that change the default to not print out the constant pool, btw.
